Puiman, L. (author)
One of the major challenges mankind faces nowadays is combating climate change. A substantial fraction of greenhouse gases are released by industrial processes, as steelmaking, (oil)refinery and waste processing. Emissions from these processes can partly be prevented with a recently developed technology called gas fermentation. Within this...

The growing global population and heightened concern for climate change leads to increased interest in utilizing microbial fermentations to replace polluting production processes for e.g., plastics, fuels, and animal proteins. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a valuable tool for accelerating the scale-up and optimization of large-scale...

In large-scale syngas fermentation, strong gradients in dissolved gas (CO, H<sub>2</sub>) concentrations are very likely to occur due to locally varying mass transfer and convection rates. Using Euler-Lagrangian CFD simulations, we analyzed these gradients in an industrial-scale external-loop gas-lift reactor (EL-GLR) for a wide range of...

In gas fermentations (using O2, CO, H2, CH4 or CO2), gas-to-liquid mass transfer is often regarded as one of the limiting processes. However, it is widely known that components in fermentation broths (e.g., salts, biomass, proteins, antifoam, and organic products such as alcohols and acids) have tremendous impact on the volumetric mass transfer...

This study explores key success factors for ethanol production via fermentation of gas streams, by assessing the effects of eight process variables driving the fermentation performance on the production costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Three fermentation feedstocks are assessed: off-gases from the steel industry, lignocellulosic biomass...

This paper describes the effects of uniform and non-uniform liquid co-flow on the bubbly flow in a rectangular column (with two inlets) deliberately aerated unevenly. The two vertical bubbly streams, comprising uniform bubbles, started interacting downstream of the trailing edge of a splitter plate. This study quantifies the emergence of...

Unique experiments were performed in a homogeneously sparged rectangular 400×200×2630 mm (W×D×H) bubble column with and without liquid co-flow. Bubbles in the range 4–7 mm were produced by needle spargers, which resulted in a very uniform bubble size. Dual-tip optical fibre probes were used to measure horizontal profiles of gas fractions,...

A parallel and scalable stochastic Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method applied to large-scale dense bubbly flows is reported in this paper. The DSMC method is applied to speed up the bubble-bubble collision handling relative to the Discrete Bubble Model proposed by Darmana et al. (2006) [1]. The DSMC algorithm has been modified and...

Unspecific peroxygenases have recently gained significant interest due to their ability to catalyse the hydroxylation of non-activated C−H bonds using only hydrogen peroxide as a co-substrate. However, the development of preparative processes has so far mostly concentrated on benzylic hydroxylations using liquid substrates. Herein, we...

Lakerveld, R. (author)
Crystallization is historically one of the most important separation and product formation technologies in chemical industry. The future impact of crystallization is expected to increase as new high-added value products are often in crystalline form and need to comply with increasingly stringent product quality requirements. This calls for...

Bakker, R. (author)
With precise knowledge of the rules which govern a deterministic chaotic system, it is possible to interact with the system and change its dynamics. This research is part of a larger project, in which chaos control is used to improve the bubbling behavior of multi-phase chemical reactors. Chaos control requires models which capture the complete...

Harteveld, W.K. (author)
The aim of the thesis is to contribute to the understanding of the hydrodynamics of the gravity driven bubbly flow that can be found in bubble columns. Special attention is paid to the large scale structures that have a strong impact on several key parameters such as the degree of mixing, mass and heat transfer. An experimental investigation has...

Groen, J.S. (author)
In this project a detailed experimental analysis was performed of the dynamic flow field in bubbly flows, with the purpose of determining local hydrodynamics and scale effects. Measurements were done in gas-liquid systems (air-water bubble columns) and in gas-solid systems (air-sand bubbing fluidized beds) of different size. Amongst others with...
